The paint code, or name, of the yellow that city link delivery vans are painted in?

Yes, discovered today that my car has been painted the same colour as a courier van

are they even painted?

Most big companys with lots of vans use vinyl wrap like the sky vans.

Found out after a lot of searching that they paint the vans yellow, then vinyl wrap the front end green.

The citroen canary yellow looks very similar, might try and compare the two, might get off with using it.

According the the guy I bought the car off, the bodyshop he put the car to get sprayed had a few litres of it. Its actually quite easy to get hold of, its a huge paint company that manufature it.

I was reading the post thinking 'he'll have a job getting an email back' then I saw the dates

Interesting reason to register anyway, hope you get sorted.
